  1. I ended up adding enough water to make it saucy--pretty thick sauce otherwise. I assumed it was supposed to have a "sauce". This was very quick and easy to prepare and the flavor was outstanding. Would definitely recommend others give it a try...
  2. I have been making this recipe and variations of it since 1991 or so, i gound it in a Great American Recipes card that i had recipeved in the mail. <br/>I recently lost the card and SO glad i found it here!<br/>This time i had too much chicken to fit in the pan.<br/>I sauteed the veggies, added the mushrooms and cooked a bit. Transferred to a bowl. Browned the chicken and removed to a 9x13 baking dish. Added some olive oil, then the flour to the pan. Added the water ( had to add another cup or so, and seasonings, let simmer, then added wine and sour cream. <br/>Poured all over the chicken and baked at 325 for 1/2 hour. <br/>DELISH! Served with couscous.
  3. My DS and his girlfriend were over one Sunday not long ago and I wanted to make something easy but special, and so I chose this recipe. I figured chicken would be a good choice and am I glad I made it. I got compliments galore from the two of them with each bite. Served it with Wild Rice on the side, the sauce, which I doubled was drizzled over the top, and it made for a very tasty meal!
  4. Thank you Sharlene for pointing that out! It is supposed to be thick, But I, like you, added water to thin slightly. I just forgot to note that on the recipe.
  5. What great chicken! The sauce had excellent flavor, and the chicken was tender and really delicious. I have made this several times now and hope others give it a try!!
